Back on track

The last few weeks of this weight loss journey have been rough!  I have gained a fair amount of weight!  It’s infuriating!  But it is the story of my last few weeks!

Now lets be real here.  I haven’t gone off the rails and eaten thousands and thousands of calories over my goal!  Not at all!  But I have eaten over my caloric goal on many days...my goal is around 1200 to 1500 calories a day.  I have been around 1700 to 2000 calories most days.  So definitely NOT crazy eating!   So I personally feel 8 pounds is unwarranted!  But it is what it is!


Yesterday started a new month....and I’m ready to rock this new month.  Even with lots of weight loss obstacles!   I can do it!

So what obstacles do I have this month?  

* Well first up is my birthday!  (How on the world will I be 47 years old??). It’s hard to say no to my own birthday cake!  My birthday comes with a four day weekend from work...and I struggle more on weekends with my eating!  Oh and we will be going away for a night or two during that weekend!  ~~sigh~~

* Speaking of birthdays...December is birthday month in our family...we have two more birthdays to celebrate!  Three if you count my fathers birthday...though he is no longer with us.  :( 

* Christmas potluck at work....food galore!  

* Christmas Eve...Jason and I celebrate at home

* Christmas Day celebrations with our families.

* A second long weekend...5 days at Christmas...once again...difficult to keep in line on the weekends!

* whatever random celebrations and events that pop up!

So it won’t be an easy month!   But I am determined to lost SOMETHING this month!  I am focused and I can do it!!!

You are not alone. I have been off track as well. I think that's why I have more pain lately.

I am back on track myself. After a month of gains I finally had a loss. It was only 0.8 pound but considering it was Thanksgiving week end I was surprised and ready to finish the last weeks of 2019 with continuous success. This time of the year is super tough and I do plan to enjoy some treats but keep it in moderation. I want to end the year with losses.

December is rough here too. Two birthdays on top of Christmas! Expensive, as well as a lot of cake. I gained weight after Thanksgiving and am feeling like I need to make a new start.

I failed November. December will be rough with Christmas, my birthday, and a vacation week (I always eat more/exercise less when he is on vacation). But I'm determined to just do better than November.
